Every Man a Liar

“For what if some did not believe? shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect? God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar…” Romans 3:304

Those of you who have read my pieces any length of time know I admire intelligence and gifted people. I stand in awe of the innate abilities of people, and respect their many skills and contributions, both to society in general, and to the church in particular.

However, God’s Word has no peer, and no matter how talented or ambitious or intelligent a person, if his views contradict the Bible–or worse yet–if he should postulate the Bible as being silly or untrue, I will always consider that person mistaken. He may be evil as he voices his opinion, or he may simply be misguided and mistaken.

So, I found it interesting recently to learn of a letter written by Albert Einstein in which he called the Bible “pretty childish.” This brilliant, highly gifted intelligent man is just wrong. The Bible speaks to such opinion in the text with which I opened this post.

A letter being auctioned in London this week adds more fuel to the long-simmering debate about the Nobel prize-winning physicist’s religious views.

In the note, written the year before his death, Einstein dismissed the idea of God as the product of human weakness and the Bible as “pretty childish.”

The letter, handwritten in German, is being sold by Bloomsbury Auctions on Thursday and is expected to fetch between $12,000 and $16,000.

The entire story is here.

We must hold to the truth of God’s Word, and, with our lives defend its veracity and significance.

    Hello, Kip–Welcome.

    Why, indeed.

    We should defend the Bible because it is an unduplicated source of truth. Written over a period of 1600 years by 40 different men in three continents, it has been proven many times over to be accurate. It is trusted by millions and continues every year to be the best selling book ever written.

    Matthew 24:35 says, “Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my word shall never pass away.”

    The writings of the Bible reflect distinct unity and has been miraculously preserved. It changes lives, as has been witnessed by people of all races. It contains the message of salvation.

    A big subject, Kip, and one to be taken seriously, as I’m sure you do.

    Blessings always–

    If the idea of God is the product of human weakness.

    Then the idea of no God is the product of human arrogant.

    In that day every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord. Yes, I have heard of other well known people say the same thing but one day God will have His say and they will finally admit that the Bible is truth!

    If Einstein were alluding to how we as humans must become as little children to enter into the kingdom of heaven (Mat 18:3 [though I kind of doubt he meant this]), then in that sense, the Bible is “childish.” Otherwise, let God be true but every man a liar!

    Sorry my mom & I have not been as consistent lately in our blogging. We just recently moved to a new apartment. We are still near family, still going to church in Fairfield. The Lord is good!

    This is nonsense, how can you ever deny the existence of god. I am a big fan of science and knowledge, and throughout my study, i have seen many things that are truly filled with miracles. There is no way that there isn’t a god that created us all. Look around you, the signs are all around us, and even inside us. Look how we can see and think and make decisions. Look how a child is formed in a woman’s womb, how a cell knows what to do and what to be and where to go, how iron is available for us to use, how the human is the dominant creature. There are many things that science will never explain and God is the only true explanation to these miracles. I am not christian, I am muslim, but I know that god exists and that the Bible was brought down from god to Jesus peace be upon him. Maybe some changes were made over time and some beliefs were changed but nobody can deny the greatness of the holy books of God. the Torah, the Bible, and the Quran. Look around you and you will find the miracles of God. It’s undeniable.
